LOVINGSTON, Va. (AP) - Three men have been fined after pleading guilty in Nelson County to misdemeanor bear hunting charges.

Justin A. Perry, of Greenville and Roger Matthew Lowery of Raphine each pleaded guilty on Wednesday in Nelson County General District Court to unlawfully killing a bear and trespassing.

Nelson County assistant commonwealth’s attorney Jerry Gress tells The Roanoke Times (https://bit.ly/1BL0lL2 ) that Perry and Lowery were fined a total $1,650.

Gess says Manuel R. Graybill of Crimora pleaded guilty to conspiracy to kill a bear and was fined $100.

State conservation police officers have said Perry and Matthew shot a bear on Dec. 20, 2014 on private property. They attempted to have Graybill check the bear because they already had reached the limit of killing one bear per license year.
